TEMPE, Ariz. -- It's not a well-kept secret that the Cardinals have struggled against tight ends.
St. Louis' Jared Cook, New Orleans' Jimmy Graham and San Francisco's Vernon Davis have torched the team for a combined six touchdowns and 455 yards, while Carolina's Greg Olsen (five catches, 79 yards) and Seattle's Zach Miller (five catches, TD) also had good days.
Next up: Atlanta's Tony Gonzalez, whose importance to the club has been magnified since a season-ending injury to receiver Julio Jones.
Gonzalez was set to retire but decided to return when the Falcons essentially let him skip training camp. He has 24 catches for 276 yards and two TDs in his last three games.
"He's a great player; he's a Hall of Famer," Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles said. "He's seen it all -- double-(teams), triple-(teams), two high (safeties), one high -- he's seen everything, but with the great quarterback they have, you can't just key on him, so you've got to pick your spots."
